This Earthsea novel doesn't focus on Ged, but Tenar, a young girl who is supposedly the reincarnation of an ancient priestess. It's darker and more confined than the first book, or indeed, any Le Guin book I can remember, but I liked it for that. Some aspects seemed a little underdramatized, but it was pretty much on par with the first book on the whole. Good, but lacking a spark of greatness.
